Ainge "disciplined" on trade market, not worried about impatience of fan base

The last time Danny Ainge oversaw a rebuild, it took four years. He took over a Celtics team with Paul Pierce, Antoine Walker and not much else in 2003, and began stockpiling assets -- via both the draft and trades -- until he had enough to pull off trades for both Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in 2007.This time, it appears that some media and fans are expecting things to happen a...

Danny Ainge, Celtics remain patient, disciplined

No amount of chips — and there have been some impressive stacks in play across the league — have been able to pry Kevin Love loose from Minnesota. That could change once the 30-day moratorium on the new contracts of Cleveland’s Andrew Wiggins or Chicago’s Doug McDermott passes, but for now the Timberwolves power forward is in the place he least wants to be. And the Celtics...

Your Morning Dump..Where Ainge & The Celtics Remain Patient & Disciplined

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.  His general public may be waiting for more, but president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has been wading through a field of bad possibilities for his assets stack. Better to wait. Love is no less a long...

CelticsLife Mailbag: What else does Danny Ainge have up his sleeve?

With the Celtics' off-season seemingly dying down (or maybe it just never got started?), I figured it would be a good time to answer a few twitter questions from the readers. More of a tweet-bag than a mailbag, but tweet-bag hasn't quite become a mainstream phrase yet, so I'm sticking with mailbag.Thanks to everyone who wrote in. Rondo related questions@CelticsLife we...

Celtics Ready To Move On From Kevin Love Trade Talks

The Boston Celtics are ready to all but move on from their pursuit of Kevin Love with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls engaged in talks. Danny Ainge has targeted a trade for Love over the past few months. "The more teams step up and show interest in Love, the further Boston falls in the pack," a source said on Wednesday.

Report: Celtics Prepared To Jump Out Love Sweepstakes

The Kevin Love sweepstakes are heating up, which isn’t good for Danny Ainge and his Celtics. Boston at one point seemed to be in decent position to land the 3-time all-star, but with Cleveland and Chicago upping their offers, it has left Boston in the dust. “The more teams step up and show interest in […]

Let’s take a moment to laugh at the Lakers

Danny Ainge and the Celtics didn’t exactly deliver on the fireworks promised by owner Wyc Grousbeck this owner, but at least we’re not the Lakers: What are the Lakers doing? Fewer contracts raised more eyebrows around the Las Vegas Summer League than this one. The Lakers continue to overvalue their own players. They seem determined to languish in mediocrity. This is Millsap money...

Danny Ainge: Celtics Had Other Options With $10.3M Trade Exception

Danny Ainge is being lauded for his role in Thursday’s three-team trade, which landed the Boston Celtics Tyler Zeller, Marcus Thornton and a first-round draft pick at marginal cost. Ainge, the Celtics’ president of basketball operations, was not without other options, though, he told reporters Thursday. Before using a $10.3 million trade exception to take on Zeller and Thornton’s...

Ainge and Stevens comment on LeBron and free agency

I want to thank you for taking three seconds to read this, and stepping away from twitter waiting for LeBron's decision part two. The world is waiting for James, and I'll feel bad for Cleveland if he doesn't pick them. I won't blame James if he doesn't pick Cleveland, because I think the media has put false hope in those fans ears. ESPN Boston "As far as...
